Sergei Bobrovsky, Blue Jackets shut out the Flyers

Sergei Bobrovsky sat in his locker stall wearing a smile he rarely had with the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers traded him at the draft two years ago and Bobrovsky’s seen a lot of success since then. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner continued it by stealing the show in a 2-0 win for the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Flyers.

Back on familiar ice, Bobrovsky made himself quite at home.

Bobrovsky stopped 37 shots for his fourth shutout of the season, leading the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Flyers, 2-0, on Thursday night for their first ever win in Philadelphia.

With a chance to put the Blue Jackets away, the Flyers allowed them to stick around and thus extend their playoff hopes. Both teams have now played 76 games and with little sand left in the hourglass, the Flyers are clinging to a two-point lead in the standings.
